Die cut gaskets for EMI shielding and other applications are reliable, customizable, and cost-effective. As a manufacturing technique, die cutting combines proven technologies with efficient approaches to gasket fabrication. Specific die cutting techniques vary, but most methods involve two core components: a metal tool called the die, and the die cutting machine itself. Die cutting is a smart choice for connector gaskets, but it’s also used to produce many other types of seals and insulation.
Die cutting can create a range of gasket sizes with tight tolerances. Part volumes can range from low-volume prototypes to high-volume production runs. Features such as clean edges and bolt holes with specific radii are readily achievable. Die cutting has many advantages, but there are three important reasons to choose a die cut gasket for your next project.
Low setup costs.
Supply chain flexibility.
Design changes without major tooling expense.
